Abstract. In the present study, it was attempted to perform the residual stress in the aluminum sheet A.A5083 via hot metal forming process by gas according to the Finite Element Method. The existence of the residual stress in the industrial pieces results in changing the reaction of structure against the applied load. The understanding of the effect of residual stress on the structural behavior is required and the design of the sensitive pieces regardless of the residual stress can result in financial and fatality damages. The aim of the present study was to apply an efficient approach to determine the stresses caused during the forming process with the hole drilling method. Thus, the sheet of 5083 aluminum alloy was formed by that method in an imperfect conical mold and the mentioned parameters were evaluated. At first, the section was analyzed initially and after preparing the mapping, it was modeled in the analysis software and its reliability was evaluated. The finite element analysis method of the hot metal forming process by the gas dependent on the temperature was evaluated. To simulate the forming process, ABAQUS/Explicit as the finite element software was used. At the end, the results obtained by the residual stress via the finite element method were compared with the results of the experimental tests of the piece.
